Harrow St Mary vs Wealdstone U9 Blue
By Aidan King
Team lose their winning streak with close run lose
Harrow St. Marys v Wealdstone B
Harrow are unbeaten this season as we were going into the game - so we knew it would be close. We lost 9-2 to them last season.
We started a little slower in the first QTR and were second to the ball. Very tight with not many chances. Second QTR we got a lot more pressure on the ball with Brandon having a good shot and Frankie and Alex also coming close. Brandon cleared off the line. Half time 0-0.
Third QTR, again we had chances to score but couldn’t find a way through their defensive pairing. We got caught on the counter a couple of time and Jamie made 2 outstanding saves to keep us in it. Rueban burst through from midfield and was brought down in the box - no penalty. 0-0.
We continued to press higher up the pitch with Stephen covering the back superbly. Rueban narrowly missed wide and good work from Frankie down the Right resulting in a goal mouth scramble but they cleared it off the line. The broke on us and Jamie made another great save but it rebounded directly to their striker who tapped in with 3 mins to play. 1-0.
Superb tight game today. Boys battled really hard and their is no shame in that performance at all. We can’t be at our best every week but we dug in and battled hard.
MOM: Jamie (1st Class Display).
Well done boys onto next week??
